Decision-making and motion planning are the primary responsibilities of mobile robots. Taking input from a variety of perception and localization systems, the planner's job is to figure out where the robot is going and how to get there safely. 

A key piece of developing software for autonomous mobility is measuring and validating its performance over time and across iterations. As a Metrics Frontend Engineer Intern, you will work on and develop a metrics and validation platform to help developers validate their changes across the autonomy stack.  You should be passionate about web applications working on intuitive frontend and backend services with equal importance to maintenance in a standalone capacity.
